Small Community Librarian of the Year

Honoring a small community library director or librarian for excellence.

Nominations are sought each spring to honor a small community library director or librarian. Selection of the Small Community Librarian of the Year focuses on what the nominees do for their community and the betterment of humankind; and also on how they do so well with what they have (especially important during this financial age). Programming, grants, support of the community, innovative marketing — these are important factors in determining the year’s honoree. The winner will be honored during the TLA Annual Conference.

Qualifications

The honoree must be:

  • A current member of SCLRT; and
  • A librarian in a library with an under 12,000-service population.

Submitting a Nomination

Anyone can nominate any librarian, even themselves, as long as they meet the few qualifications listed above.

Please prepare a document (maximum of two pages) containing narrative information about your nominee, including why she/he should be considered for the Librarian of the Year Award. Remember to cover such aspects as library initiatives, programming, innovative marketing, creative use of limited resources, community involvement, etc.

Nomination Form

Application Deadline: March 12
